Round 5 squad vs. Newcastle Jets


Could the Reds go into consecutive games with an unchanged line-up for the first time this season?

Could the Reds go into consecutive games with an unchanged line-up for the first time this season?

Two days out from Saturday-s home game against the Newcastle Jets, Coach Josep Gombau has named the same 16 that suited up in the narrow loss to the Wanderers last Friday night.

Striker Bruce Djite and Cassio are both knocking on the door after both fully recovered from their injuries and played in the Reds- Youth Team last Sunday, although Gombau may be hesitant to rush them back and instead opt to again give them some more match conditioning in the Youth League.

With another training session to go before kick-off, Gombau could still decide to tweak his squad before Saturday-s 5pm kick-off.

Daniel Bowles is the only player unavailable as he continues his rehab from an ankle injury.

Meanwhile for the Jets, marquee striker Emile Heskey has been named in an extended squad, the former England and Liverpool striker yet to make an appearance this season due to injury. Nathan Burns and Mark Birighitti are also set to return to Coopers Stadium to face their former club.

Tickets for the match are available through Ticketek.
